This week (May 2nd through May 6th) is Teacher Appreciation Week. A huge Thank You goes out to all of the PTA and Parent Volunteers that helped decorate the doors at the school on Friday to have them ready for the teachers Monday Morning! The doors look great!
Last week, Goshen students were taught about the history of Western Dance, and they were taught the basics of square dancing. This kids had fun learning the different steps to square dancing, and then putting it into practice. They were even able to square dance to popular music. It was a good time for everyone!
Monday, our school has the opportunity to learn about Country Western dancing by participating in a good ole Western Hoedown! We will learn the history behind Country Western Dancing and learn a dance or two. If you're child has Western Wear, please have them wear it on Monday. If you're student does not own any, that's okay, it's not mandatory. This will be a fun activity, and we're looking forward to learning about this type of dance!
On Tuesday, the Sixth Graders participated in their track meet at Payson High School. Our students did a great job this year! A huge congratulations goes out to Paiden Judd who won first place overall in the 100 meter race and the long jump. Our boys' relay team, Porter Taylor, Paiden Judd, Benny Brownfield, and Carlisle Brownfield, also took first place in their event. CONGRATULATIONS boys!!!
